    blessing for metalshaper? recommendations please

  2. Simon Southwell

    What blessing should I put on Metalshaper?

  3. Selonair

    Hey! Could you update Metalshaper to be a 5* of 5* for scarab? I’ve used him against DT Hard 2nd scarab boss no worries at level 40!! He’s amazing one of the best continuous shield champs out there.

  4. Hemsley

    whoops, by FK, I meant SK, Scarab King. That 2 turn AOE shield on his A2 might be gold against Borgoth.

  5. Hemsley

    I had a question about why he needs accuracy and saw Ben suggests for his A1, stealing a random buff.

    For my own purposes and for a lot of other people’s purposes I’m guessing we use him for only FK and FW although HH suggests he could be useful for his A3 against all those spawning spiderling spider types. In any case I find myself choosing on the support mastery between Pinpoint Accuracy and Max HP of 810, which is not a lot but much more keeping with the support tree path chosen above. If I would choose pinpoint accuracy in support of his A1 then I would go down the right side. As opposed to going down the left side as shown which supports his A3 healing. I dunno, that’s what I’m gonna do. Support his A3, but choosing the 810 instead of the Pinp Acc.

  6. Pir

    @xDead — 0 stars means the champion hasn’t yet been evaluated by AyumiLove for the boss in question, not that he’s somehow worse than another champion who has already been evaluated.

  7. xDead

    How is this guy ranked 0/5 stars for Scarab King, while Scrapper is ranked 5/5 stars?
    This guy puts a permanent shield on your whole team enabling them all to avoid counter attacks forever, while Scrapper only puts a shield on himself. It is much quicker to fight Scarab King with a team of 5 than a team of 1.

  8. Ben

    @HW3 “Has a 30% chance of stealing 1 random buff from the target.” This is why he needs accuracy.

  9. HW3

    I don’t get the accuracy banner recommendation. I am using resistance because it has a speed substat.

  10. Jason Willis

    ¿es un candidato perfecto para el Rey Escarabajo en la Torre del Destino? como?

  11. Cortavius

    @Kemosabe It doesn’t matter if 2 turns on shield or not – just that cooldown equals shield length. There are other champions that do this like Miscreated (3T shield with 3T CD). Then the turn meter control comes in place unless you have Vergis who can solo. Miscreated can actually solo as well, but he takes too long and the battle times out so he doesn’t get credit. I haven’t tried a destroy set on him to see if that works due to high cost of changing gear. Also my MM has support and defense trees so not sure if Off tree would allow him to win faster either.

  12. Tanuvan


    I just got metalshaper six stared and almost to 50 and starting masteries. As soon as I’m done and try it out, I’ll let ya know.

  13. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    Even now that Lodric Falconheart has been added, Metalshaper still seems to shine, because Lodric has an Ally Protection buff that can trigger the Scarab King’s extra attack. But Scrapper seems like he might replace Metalshaper–hope I get a 5th one, after having used all of my others for the Astralon fusion. Anyone able to compare Scrapper to Metalshaper for Scarab King?

  14. Phil

    @chuck ellis I think he needs it’s to steal a buff on A1.

  15. chuck ellis

    Why hace ACC banner? He casts no debuffs

  16. Doro626

    I think that tic of accuracy stat is a mastery mistake. Should have been the HP mastery instead. +10 accuracy vs +810 HP.

  17. Kemosabe

    @Tom Actually metalshaper is the best CHAMPION who has this capacity. No Epic or legendaries can do this with a 2 turn CD, he is the only one.

    @Steven The size of the shield is irrelevant, you cannot get hit, if you get hit you wipe (at least on hard mode floor 100+). The only way to do it is use turn meter manipulation on several champions so that the boss never actually takes a turn. But in order to do that, you also need to have a shield on your champions every time they attack the boss, and the only way to guarantee that for the whole fight is with metalshaper with enough speed

  18. Tom

    How much hits the scarab and how much HP has the shield is not the point.
    The point is that nobody survives the scarab WITHOUT a Shield because of the counter attack mechanics.
    And Metalshaper is the BEST RARE who has this capacity.
    So for those who have not legendaries and epics with Shield, he is the only way to pass the Scarab.

  19. Steven

    He’s actually pretty bad at the scarab king, he only shields for more or less 5k, and on hard mode, scarab hits for 10k twice on each of his turns on my 2.5k def characters.

  20. Tom

    Best rare by far to pass the Scarab in the Doom Tower where Shield is mandatory.

  21. Dargentina

    Honestly, the only reason why this guy is B ranked, is because the other rare Lizards are worse.

    Most have a single good feature here and there, and Metalshaper is no exception, as the sole reason to have him on a team is the shield.
    It’s not particularly strong, but it has a relatively decent cooldown even unbooked, and with a shield set, your team will have it easier on the first waves to push thru the other/s.

    Aside of that, there’s nothing particularly remarkable.
    He will be there only to carry the standard Shield set and specialize him on them (with support mastery), so your other Lizards can focus on damage (as much as you can, you’ll need it).

    So basically, almost a must have for Faction Wars, not because he’s really good, but because you’ll need some protection the other LZs lack.

  22. Riceaxe

    I would use a shield set and HP Set in Him to bolster up the whole team in faction wars and also make use of his good hp pool, which also benefits his third skill (HP based)
    Like, all he needs is lots of HP, Defense and maybe some accuracy to make him transfer buffs.

  23. Kaz Vorpal

    Faction Wars is missing from the ratings above.
    The only reason I use any Lizard Man is for faction wars.

  24. Marts M

    Any idea on the value of the shield he dishes out at level 60?

  25. pmackerel

    What are these tiers based off of? Your personal experience or data?

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @kronicsoldier: Metalshaper has good supportive skill to aid his allies in battle but not great in offense. Therefore, he is average in most fields. The total rating of all fields ranks him in B Rank in overall usability.

  27. kronicsoldier

    why is he a B rank?

  28. ipae

    @knobjock you have recommendations for sets/stats?

  29. KnobJock

    Equipment Set? Equipment stat priority?
